Monday, 15th August 2016

A decent migration day today with the NW airflow finally departing and a light easterly breeze taking over. The highlight of the day was seen first thing; a Corn Bunting briefly on the Golf Course which is just about annual here with most recent records being in May. A Juvenile Marsh Harrier came 'in-off' and there was a steady passage of Hirundines during the morning. An evening ringing session at the Swallow roost produced both Hobby & Merlin hunting the roost.
